The men and women of Nadi Singapura believe in maximizing the fullest potential of the art, the drums and themselves while concurrently spreading the idea of exploration in these forgotten mediums. We are always looking to share and impart this passion to those who wish to learn!
Yok Sembang Gendang! is a community engagement avenue dedicated to sharing rhythms, grooves and drums of the Malayan Archipelago. Nadi Singapura welcomes enthusiasts of all ages who wishes to participate and experience these unique and vibrant drumming styles. Yok Sembang Gendang is built along the joy of drumming while forming a distinct united voice that constantly grows and evolves through the sessions.
A ground up initiative ourselves, Nadi Singapura is proud to contribute to the community through a multitude of outreach efforts – from partnering various organisations and musical acts in putting up public performances, to collaborating with schools to bring the magic of traditional Malayan drums to every student. We are committed to making traditional Malay (percussive) music accessible to every possible audience. Our community programs are crafted to introduce the basic rhythms derived from the Malay archipelago, as well as empower the youths with opportunities to perform and reap first-hand experiences playing the drums of our people.
